DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks (2/6/19): NBA DFS Lineups


This biggest question surrounding tonight's lineup construction will NOT be whether or not James Harden forces this game to be a blowout, but just how many points he scores on the way to this game becoming a blowout. Plenty of people will be fading Harden tonight, but you know I have optimism about this matchup so I will gladly throw him in my lineup.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for DraftKings on 2/6/19. These DFS lineup picks can vary from higher-priced players and elite options to lower-priced players and value picks on DraftKings.

You can also check out today's FanDuel lineup picks. As always, don't set your lineups too early. Be sure to check all the NBA starting lineups and player statuses and availability prior to opening tip. Find me in the NBA Chat Room or @HalfCourtJester on Twitter.

DraftKings DFS Guards

Patty Mills - PG/SG, at GS ($4,200)

There are a decent number of point guard options tonight, but between Patty Mills and Bryn Forbes, I have to go with Mills. He is just a more proven product and although Forbes is more than capable of producing against the Warriors, Mills has the track record of performing well against tough teams. His most previous games look great for what his price is right now, so it's not hard to just roster Mills and then use his value to build the rest of your lineup.

Joe Ingles - PG/SG, vs. PHO ($5,400)

Against the Suns, you know SOMEONE has to produce in spectacular fashion. The Suns rank 20th against opposing small forwards and to be completely honest, Ingles needs a game like this to get back on track. He managed to score 19 two games ago and another performance like that guarantees him to exceed his projected, so with his price just roster Ingles alongside Mills for ideal value.

 

DraftKings DFS Forwards

Rudy Gay - SF/PF, at GS ($5,900)

If you want more value, look no further than Rodions Kurucs, but if you want upside, go with Rudy Gay. Gay continues to play well and that shouldn't change going up against the Warriors. He won't be stopped by anyone in particular and although he might have his hands full on the defensive end, offensively he is rolling into this game carrying a 20% usage over the last week. It may not seem like much, but it's all he needs to produce seeing how the Spurs do have other options if they need them.

Trey Lyles - PF/C, at BKN ($3,700)

There have been few players in the league that can really compare to Trey Lyles usage off the bench and while I won't waste time going through them, just note that Lyles' is creeping into 25% usage territory. Even if his minutes aren't there, when he gets on the floor he just creates production. He will go after loose balls and rebounds, not to mention his off-ball movement makes it easy for his teammates to pass to him. The Nets aren't bad defensively, but seeing how Brooklyn will need to focus their attention on Nikola Jokic, Will Barton, amongst others first, Lyles should have a decent amount of upside tonight.

 

DraftKings DFS Centers

Willie Cauley-Stein - C, at SAC ($5,500)

If Clint Capela was playing I'd might not even bother with this pick but it's hard for me to see Willie Cauley-Stein struggling as one of the taller players on the court. His athleticism almost guarantees him double-digit rebounds tonight so look for him to be playing with a little extra energy. His game log is pretty pathetic and if you use those as your main indicator then you might be a little hesitant on the pick. I wouldn't really worry about him tonight since the shots will be flying from all over; use him and view him as a value option since James Harden and Nikola Jokic should be number one and two when it comes to overall production tonight.
